Woman, 71, who touched hearts by walking miles to help victims of Zimbabwean cyclone
Woman, 71, who touched hearts by walking miles to help victims of Zimbabwean cyclone is promised a house anywhere she likes and $1,000 a month for life by country's richest man 

Plaxedes Dilon (pictured carrying donations) trudged on foot from near her home in downtown Harare, Zimbabwe, to the Highlands Presbyterian Church to donate bundles of clothes to victims of Cyclone Idai. The 71-year-old grandmother heard about the devastation on the radio after spending a long day selling clothing and decided to offer her wares to charity. Church volunteers posted a photo of Ms Dilon with a sack balanced on her head and her selfless act was noticed by Zimbabwe's richest man, Strive Masiyiwa (inset), who offered to build Ms Dilon a home wherever she wants in the country and pay her $1,000 a month for life.
